Ladies, choose who you decide to be involved with carefully. Horrific security footage from Roanoke, Virginia, shows what happens when a woman is dating an abusive man. The video is very graphic and an eye-opener. Jamar Bernard Woody, 35, launched the brutal attack on Shatory Irving, 26, in June last year. Shatory — during the time of the attack — was three months pregnant. She also was walking around on crutches due to a broken ankle. Doctors testified that Ms Irving’s skull was exposed after the vicious beating caused an inch-long split in her forehead. Her child was born premature but healthy last year. Local attorney David Billingsley told the Roanoke Times: ‘She really is fortunate that she wasn’t hurt more than she actually was.’ … Ms Irving admitted to giving testimony during Woody’s trial as part of an attempt to keep him out of jail. She described how she violated a protective order he had taken out against her in 2014 and broke windows during disagreement. “You have to understand, it is a volatile, toxic relationship,” defense attorney Melvin Hill told the Roanoke Times. It really is shocking that a woman as abused as Ms. Irving was would defend the very man that inflicted her near death blows. Chris Clemens, the judge on the case, said Woody’s jail sentence would also include psychiatric treatment. The defense attorney revealed that the abusive boyfriend had a history of mental health issues. Ladies, be strong enough to walk away from a man who would do anything like this to you. You don’t deserve to be treated like this. Guys, unless the woman you’re involved with is physically threatening your life, this is never acceptable.
